Fortunately, one WWE superstar was not injured while competing on the current WWE overseas tour.
That superstar is current WWE SmackDown Tag Team Champion Jey Uso. There was some concerned with fans of the sports entertainment company that Jey might have been injured on Smackdown Live this week when Chad Gable chop-blocked him in the outside of the ring during the Smackdown Tag Team Title match at WWE live event. The contest ended in a count out after Jey couldn’t get back inside of the ring.
Following the match, there was immediate concern from fans that Jey had been seriously injured as a result of that spot. The good news is that he wrestled at WWE’s live event in Leeds on Wednesday and those in attendance noted that The Usos defeated Breezango, the Ascension and the Hype Bros to retain their Smackdown Tag Team Titles. This indicates that Jey is okay and this is only a storyline injury.
They were trained by their father Rikishi and debuted in WWE's developmental brand Florida Championship Wrestling in 2009, where they became FCW Florida Tag Team Champions.
They would go on to make their main roster debuts the next year and have gone on to be five-time tag team champions in WWE, capturing the WWE Tag Team Championship twice in 2014 and winning the Slammy Award for Tag Team of the Year in both 2014 and 2015. In 2017, they became SmackDown Tag Team Champions on three different occasions.
They were the first team to win both the Raw Tag Team Championship (formerly WWE Tag Team Championship) and SmackDown Tag Team Championship.
The Usos are slated to face Raw Tag Team Champions Sheamus and Cesaro at the upcoming Survivor Series PPV (pay-per-view) event in a non-title match.
